“Good Basic Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2005

I stayed at the Econo Lodge Lake Placid on 3/2/05. Upon arriving at midnight, the pleasant front desk clerk had our keys waiting for us and took the time to orient us to the town and surrounding mountains. Our room/bathroom was exceptionally clean. This hotel is about 3 minutes away from downtown Lake Placid, and about 10 minutes from Whiteface. A good bargain for our short stay.

One of the cheapest alternatives in Lake Placid. Rooms are clean and have good beds. The first room we got had the toilet running. The employee at the desk was very friendly and gave us a different and better room. The water in the swimming pool looked a bit unhealthy.

Well, talk about a lousy start.

First off, two different desk clerks on two different days could not tell us how to get there from I87. When we called, one simply told us "I don't know." The other gave us the wrong exit. The desk folk were pretty consistantly bored and uninterested. Surprised me for a resort town, Econolodge or not.

The rooms are standard motel fare. For $100 a night, I didn't expect much, but I thought it would be a little better than this. Its nice that they have an indoor pool, I have to say.

The muffins and coffee and whatever in the lobby for breakfast are predictably a joke, but that's usual. I guess we felt like, if you're going to charge more than your average Econolodge, you should be a little better than your average Econolodge.

I know its an Econolodge, I get that. But I mean, c'mon. its Lake Placid ... shouldn't you at least be nice and be able to explain how to get there?

After climbing Mount Marcy, I stayed in Lake Placid for the night and left the next morning. I stayed at an Econo Lodge, which was very affordable and clean. Strolled through town the next morning and had breakfast at a restaurant overlooking the lake. Absolutely gorgeous. I also visited John Brown's farm, which was quite interesting. The guide there was very friendly and informed. It's a beautiful little town with a lot of hoity toity stores (maybe too many). My only complaint was with the mountain trails. If you're planning on climbing Marcy, or any of the other high peaks, bring your own guidebooks, because there just wasn't enough information at the parking lot.
